Three-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton has said that it is now much harder to break into F1 from karting than when he started.
“The best race just gave the guys back in those days, said Hamilton during a television program Quitidien this week. — There is racing better than Formula 1 or even in any categories. The guys there absolutely fearless”.
Hamilton said that it was difficult for them to enter the path of Formula 1, given the level of competition and financial costs.
“I think it is now even harder – continued Lewis. – But a lot of talented guys, and they’re trying to break, but because of the more modern technologies it is now much more expensive.
Yes, and after all karting is expensive — I remember my dad three or four times mortgaged the house so I continued to speak. In Formula 1 it is difficult to get just because karting is expensive.
I have had nothing. When I started karting, we had no money. That’s probably why I had a desire to compete with richer families.
Need energy, talent and a lot of faith in yourself. And I wouldn’t be here if not for my family… and envy!”
